From a press release:

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will begin repairing and resurfacing the U Street NW roadway between 9th Street NW and 14th Street NW as part of the U Street NW Streetscape Project. Work on the busy corridor will begin the week of May 6, 2013; weather permitting.

The complete resurfacing will take approximately three weeks to complete to ensure the roadway can safely accommodate cars, pedestrians and bicyclists; and that water runs off properly.

STEP 1: Milling away 2” of the old surface from 9th Street NW to 14th Street NW – approx. 3 days
STEP 2: Repairing damaged concrete – approx. 10 days
STEP 3: Paving the roadway with asphalt from 9th Street NW to 14th Street NW – approx. 3 days

When the asphalt has been removed, pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists are advised to use caution as they travel through or near this work zone as the roadway will be uneven until the new asphalt surface is placed. Please obey all traffic and parking restrictions.
